With many Cortelyou Road businesses still closed, and many others operating at a loss of 75% of business or pivoting to a new business model we need community support more than ever to help Cortelyou Road remain a vital commercial corridor.
Brooklyn has never seen a crisis like this before. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone, decimating our entire community - especially the neighborhood businesses that we rely on. These are the businesses that fuel our daily lives — the ones that make Brooklyn, BROOKLYN — a world renowned expression of craft, diversity, food, design, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Our local businesses are in trouble, and they need our support NOW to survive. . . before they are gone forever.
